the lives of four americans including ambassador chris stevens. while the united states rejects efforts to deny great the religious rebeliefs of other, we must oppose kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public ser vabts. according to the white house, the president was informed by national security adviser yesterday afternoon as he started his weekly meeting with secretary of defense and chairman of the joint chiefs. then president obama was notified last night that ambassador stevens was unaccounted for and then this morning he was notified about his death. secretary of state hillary clinton also condemned the attacks expressing, quote, proceed noubd sadness and adding all the americans weless in yesterday's attacks made the ultimate sacrifice. we condemn in vicious and violent attack that took their lives which they had committed to helping the libyan people reach for a better future. angry protesters also stormed the u.s. embassy in cairo scaling the wall, pulling down an american flag. all of this and outrage over an amateur video that denounces islam that by an a

and indirect fire. for the united states government to simply say it was a spontaneous acted flies in the face of the facts. >> gregg: leland vittert is live in cairo. what is the latest in libya? >> reporter: right now the libyan president is talking about these attacks. he said he wouldn't be surprised if they were preplanned and go through a list of reasons he thinks this has a very sophisticated planning system rather than just spontaneous protests which then turned into attacks. we'll go through what he said. he thought because it happened on 9/11, that led to the idea there was some significance or symbolism for one of these groups that was in some way affiliated. number two, how heavily armed the attackers were. the way they used direct fire and indirect fire as the congressman talked about as they went through the u.s. consulate building. last point, an interesting fact there was really two attacks. that was a follow on attack at the safe house that was used by the con sue lalt officials that these groups knew about. not only did they attack the consulate but attacked the safe house an
change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he did in 2008. but it still will cut off on my monitor but you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points for the share of eligible voters who are minorities according to the data between 2008 and 2012. that's a massive demographic tide against the republicans and you can see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to step back, catch my breath and just say why is this. why is this going on? why does obama have the lead he does? why is from the having difficulty, and what many people argue should be the core limping along economy and a president that has done so much as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of vo
in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for
of the united states, speaking directly to them with their faces, their words coming out and saying this was not u.s. government policy. that's the truth. >> i think it's not an apology. let's talk about how the people in the united states may feel. you know the people there well, but many people in the u.s. don't understand why a cheap internet movie that was made here in the u.s., not in pakistan, not -- how would you explain this cultural divide? >> we take very personally the importance of our protections for free speech, but in pakistan and elsewhere in the world it's beyond the law. it's beyond a constitutional. they are -- i have always found -- i have served for many muslim countries, muslim majority countries, and i have found the people to be very gracious, very welcoming, very accepting of my differences as a foreigner, and they expect and would like to be shown greater respect, and they find that this kind of video is highly disrespectful of them and it's offensive. now, that does not, as it did in libya, in any way excuse the violence or taking of civilian lives, the bu
reauthorization makes plain that discrimination is not the policy of these united states. it says no program funded by federal vawa dollars can turn away a domestic violence victim because of their sexual orientation or their gender identity, whether the victim is gay or straight, american indian, white, black or latino, in my view, madam president, and in the view of so many in this chamber, they deserve protection from abuse and justice for their abusers. there are two other important changes in this vawa reauthorization as passed through the senate. both of which help ensure we bring perpetrators to justice no national who their victims are or where the claims are committed. these help law enforcement to secure needed testimony from victims who are unwilling to come forward due to reasonable fears of deportation. so in total, all three of these important changes to the substance and scope of vawa i think strengthen it, i think carry forward its initial spirit and i think are completely appropriate things for this senate and the house to do in our every five-year reconsideration and reauth
thing either for the region or the flowering of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that the president doesn't need to as jonathan put it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think that it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting with netanyahu, because he's in a good place with that community. i don't think there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes place there we have the freedom to take the side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is inside baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's interests and think there's something to be said not rock the
. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. jon: so where does the story go from here. greg palkot is following for it live from london. greg? >> reporter: we're getting more and more information about the tragic events in libya as the day goes on. first who was involved along with ambassador to libya, chris stevens. the information officer there in libya for the united states, sean smith. as well as two other americans. possibly security. not to be confirmed yet. still be identified. they were killed in or around the consulate in benghazi that happened overnight. stevens was a career diplomat. played a key role in the tumultuous period in libya. the type of diplomat we come time and time again. president clinton --. this was result of attack by islamists protesting this film made in the u.s., critical of the muslim prophet muhamm

to where they were, we were in belt largest expansion in the history of the united states. fix medicare. allow negotiations for prescription drugs. that will save $240 billion over 10 years, and finally, takeaway subsidies from the big oil companies. they are very profitable, but they do not need our help. what you end up with then is not a $1 trillion problem. you end up with a problem in the $200 billion range. raising the ceiling, a default for the nation. he spoke out against the fairfax chamber and other chambers, and now he is saying, "wait a minute. we cannot make cuts." when he is running as the guy who wants to make cuts. he has more sides then a rubik cube. >> what your so-called plan would do to jobs. i think you should be taking into account what the impact is on jobs, and our economy, which is a major, major concern. you talked about bob mcdonnell and eric cantor. what they did was pass a measure that would avert these devastating cuts to our national defense and jobs in virginia. what has this than that done? absolutely nothing. they have not passed a budget in 3.5 years.
shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> earlier today secretary of state hillary clinton stepped up her criticism of the anti-muslim film that first prompted the protests. >> to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensib reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> joining me now live from cairo, nbc's similar maceda. give us the best description of how things are right now. >> reporter: well, ironically benghazi remained calm today. if you look at it, perhaps the libyan government's quick crackdown there on those alleged perpetrators. four individuals were arrested today. there's a manhunt going on that might have had a tamping-down effort. even there in benghazi, the u.s. government is taking no chances. we understand that all u.s. personnel has now been or have been evacuated to tripoli and only emergency staff are kept at the embassy here. here in cairo it's another 24 hours of protests against that made in usa anti-islam film. overnight last night some dramatic scenes near the u.s
people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
